Jordan is a young 2nd baseman who will graduate in 2016. Defensively, Jordan has sure hands, active footwork, and he moves with agility to the ball. He presents well, his exchange is quick, and he throws with accuracy from a quick arm action. If Jordan can field more out front, and smooth out his backhand, defense can improve. Offensively, Jordan has a square set-up, a short stride, and he makes consistent contact. He swings in good rhythm, hits line drives, and gets his lower 1/2 through. Hitting will spike with added bat speed and physical strength.
